Makeup Review, Swatches: Stila 2012 Holiday Collection Snow Angel: Eyeshadow, Lip, Liner Palettes, Brush Set
The Stila 2012 Holiday Collection has everything from stocking stuffers to star-worthy splurge items. You can light up the night with these pretty palettes and limited edition sets featuring best-selling formulas, as well as new trendy setting shades. As soon as I saw the Snow Angel Color Palette ($39.00) I knew I had to have it! I buy one every year for a great friend of mine, as each year we are both so pleased with the color choices. This year is no exception. You can create as many looks as you’d like as there are 18 versatile eyeshadows that can be applied wet or dry. The palette also comes with a Stay All Day (TM) Waterproof Volumizing Mascara to complete any eye look, as well as a step-by-step artistry look book for inspiration (which I always find so very helpful).
Written in the Stars Eye Shadow Palette ($20.00) will make your eyes sparkle and shine with this dreamy palette in a whimsical star-shaped pattern. It contains 12 neutral eyeshadow shades that can be mixed and matched for countless looks. It’s all up to you and your imagination!
All Is Bright Lip Glaze Set ($25.00) contains Stila‘s best-selling Lip Glaze in an eight piece collection containing limited edition shades with delicious scents. With just a few clicks of the pen, the iconic high-shine gloss takes lips from demure to dazzling. The eight limited edition colors are Black Cherry, Jack Frost, Sugar Plum, Splendor, Jolly, Jingle, Holly and Joy.
Seeing Stars Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner Set ($32.00) contains a set of five metallic shades to set your holiday look aglow. Perfect for accentuating any day or nighttime look, these long-lasting liners offer a pop of color that won’t budge or smudge. These shades include: Moray — golden olive shimmer; Tetra — deep shimmery purple; Oscar Fish — warm brown with gold pearl; Stargazer — black with gold and silver pearl and Angelfish — metallic pewter. I know I can wear each one as they are all great looking, and for $32.00 it makes a wonderful holiday gift for many of my beauty obsessed friends.
Holiday Brush Set ($28.00) is always a great thing to give a beauty lover. I am always in need of brushes and this five piece set made my day! It gives you all the tools needed for expert makeup application including #24 Powder Brush, #33b Domed Concealer Brush, #5 Eye Shadow Brush, #4 Smudger/Liner Brush and #33a Foundation Brush.
There is a SPLURGE ALERT item here that is $250.00 ($408.00 value) which is the Midnight Express Makeup Case! It has 10 of Stila‘s most iconic, best-selling products for complexion, eyes, cheeks and lips. The sleek black train case is embossed with a Stila logo and lined in a pretty hot pink material. The collectable case features a mirror, silver hardware accents and two pull-out trays. If you are adding only one thing to your holiday list, this must-have makeup case just may be it! Especially for the Stila fans out there, you know that once these collectible cases are gone, they are gone!
